Thoughts from insidej0b

After going near-perfect last week, and only failing to do so because Mat Barkley is a turd, I don’t have nearly the faith in my picks this week as I did then. The point spreads are minimal at this point in quite a few games, with the Chargers/Redskins game at 0 this morning. 5 dimes has Oakland -2.5, while other betting sites have them +2.5. Not sure what to make of any of this, but I don’t really use the spread to make my picks, though I do use it to apply my confidence points in some cases. So, here it is:

Bengals – I said it before the Monday night game against the Saints. The Dolphins are a mediocre team and they just keep proving it week after week

Chiefs – Not picking against this defense until they give me a reason to, although I think this game will be a close one.

Panthers – The Falcons have quit. Good. It fits their team and fans perfectly. They deserve the season they are having after being picked as the NFC Super Bowl favorites in the pre-season.

Cowboys – This one will get ugly. The Cowboys will score a ton of points, that is , of course, if DeMarcus Ware doesn’t break Dez Bryant’s punk ass neck during the week leading up to the game.

Saints – The battle of the Ryan brothers. One coaches a good team and the other coaches the Jets. I think it may be closer than I thought at the beginning of the season. I’m thinking 34-17.

Titans – The Rams gave it all they had this past week and I think they’re going to lay an egg against the Titans.

Chargers – RGIII and Haslett are frauds.

Raiders – With Matt Barkley under center, I’d take the Jags to win this game. Somehow, he was like 8/10 at some point last week, but that offense is not any good at all with him under venter.

Seahawks – How awesome would it be for the Bucs to beat the Seahawks? How awesome would it be to have a lifetime supply of Moose Tracks Frozen Yogurt topped with crushed pineapple delivered to me on my couch by a guy named Herbert wearing a tuxedo with a top hat and monocle?

Browns – God, Flacco sucks. So much that I’m honestly thinking the Browns are going to beat the pants off the Ravens. I just have a feeling.

Patriots – Go Steelers!

Colts – This game has the Colts at -1. How that is possible is beyond reasoning to me unless I missed Andrew Luck sustaining a season ending injury last week.

Packers – Stupid Cutler all dinged up and the Bears defense needs their Geritol (which after some research really just seems like a good multi-vitamin. Why did they do that whole “Old fart vitamin marketing campaign?). Packers win going away.
